Running Telnet with Command Line Parameters


The 'host' parameter

You can launch Telnet with the 'host' command line parameter to avoid interactive input of it. 'Host' may be either a host name or IP address for the remote machine you want to connect to.

Examples:

PATH\Telnet.exe u2-1

PATH\Telnet.exe 192.168.136.223

where PATH indicates your ProFTP home directory.


The 'xini' parameter

You can launch Telnet with the 'xini' command line parameter:

PATH\Telnet.exe -xini <IniFilePath>

where <IniFilePath> specifies a full path to a specific ini-file.

This feature allows you to run several Telnet sessions each with its own xwp.ini file (i.e. settings).

In order to do so, you can create a new Telnet shortcut (e.g., in the ProFTP Programs' folder) and fill in the Target field in Properties of it with the command. For example, the Target field in Properties of the Telnet shortcut might contain the following line:

"PATH\Telnet.exe" -xini myxwp1.ini

By default, the field contains a call of Telnet with no arguments, and the xwp.ini file will be used in this case.

To create your specific ini-file, you can copy the xwp.ini file and then change required parameters with the Telnet utility by starting it with the command line parameter.


The 'trace' parameter

You can launch Telnet with the 'trace' command line parameter

PATH\Telnet.exe -trace

to collect debug information in the telnet.out file in the home directory.


The 'mout' parameter

The "-mout [<outputfile>]" command line option is used to provide a "readable" text-tracing to the "outputfile" log-file for your session.


The 'log' parameter

The "-log <LogLevel>" option is used to set up the level of tracing (0..7).


The 'prof' parameter

With the "-prof profilename" command line option, you can initialize a session that will first read in the profile specified and then use its data for the session.
